Impossible Odds Podcast

Introducing Impossible Odds

Two friends, 8,000 trail miles, one year. This is Impossible Odds.

Get access to everything we publish when you sign up for Outside+.

The Appalachian Trail, the Pacific Crest Trail, and the Continental Divide Trail make up the Triple Crown of hiking; to complete them all in a lifetime is to join a group of hiking superstars. To hike all three in a year? It’s almost unthinkable.

But not for 21-year-olds Sammy Potter and Jackson Parell. The two Stanford students set out on Jan 1, 2021 on a mission to hike the Calendar-Year Triple Crown (CYTC), an 8,000-mile feat that’s only been accomplished by a handful of elite hikers. The Impossible Odds Podcast follows Potter and Parell on their quest to become the youngest Calendar-Year Triple Crowners. Will they make it? Listen to find out. 

New episodes coming soon.
